New Printed Products!

I have recently started screen printing again, which is a process I have always loved and enjoyed doing!
I have had two screens exposed with my pattern designs, allowing me to print my own designs onto a range of textile pieces.

These are the screens I have been using to print onto fabric...

...and here are a few pieces I have printed (some still to be made into products!)

... more to come soon!

Fantastic Mr Fox!

This week I made a new cushion, a cute fox face! perfect for any child or adults room!

Soon to be made in a range of fabrics!

Bespoke order!

Recently I have been making a bespoke order for a customer to give as a gift to a friend!
I helped the customer choose the colours, fabric, trim and products to suit their needs.
I then handmade the cushion and the peg bag making them truly unique!
I had a delighted customer and have been told the recipient of the gifts also loved them!
I really love the greens and teals used in this order and would like to combine them in some of my other pieces!

Peg bags!

Its been a while since my last post in which time I have added a new product to my range ...Pegbags!
These are fun to make and are the perfect way to add a splash of colour to any washing line!

This magazine boasts 14,900 readers and features lots of usueful and interesting pieces and adverts.
The section I have featured on is 'A place for local retailers to display their wares and provide readers with seasonally evocative, inspirational gift and style ideas.'

Bespoke Cushions!

This week I have completed a pair of bespoke cushions for a lovely customer who I helped chose the fabric and trim for her cushions, which I then handmade for her. These were a present for her to give her parents for Mothers and Fathers day, which I have been told they absolutly loved!

The colour scheme from the room that my customer wanted to continue was a dark orange and red, I therefore researched suitable fabrics and gave my customer lots of different options. The fabric that she loved was a fabric by Jessica Jones called wildflower dawn. Unfortuantly this fabric was only available in America so I ordered it and got it shipped over to the UK.

The trim we decided on was a dark red/ burgandy pom pom trim which really complimented the colours in the fabric and also the plain fabric I chose to use on the back of the cushions.

I really like how these cushions turned out and customer loved them!

I have used a mix of my own fabrics, retro fabrics and patterened fabrics to make these keyrings with a contrasting bright colour or stripe on the back.
The little keyring's are gently padded with polyester stuffing to give a plush  look and feel!

Ive also finished a few more makeup bags, soon to be online!... 

Lots of lavender!

Last week I spent a couple of afternoons cutting out, sewing and stuffing lots of gorgeous lavender bags!
I have used a mix of vintage, retro, floral, patterned and my own designed fabrics for the front of the lavender bags with a bright coloured fabric on the back!
All the lavender bags are stuffed with English grown dried lavender and are all hand sewn to finish!
